For select purchases made using Apple Pay over the next week, Apple will donate $1 to (RED). The charity, which Apple has long had a partnership with, raises funds for HIV/AIDs program in sub-Saharan Africa.
Despite poor demand for iPhone X, Apple seemingly forgot about its flagship smartphone when designing the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8. This gorgeous concept video below gives us a taste of what could have been — and proves there should be a (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X in the future.
Apple’s fancy new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8, now available to preorder for delivery next Friday, ships with an exclusive new wallpaper. It’s already available to download, which means you can enjoy it on any iPhone without having to fork out $700 for a new one.
You won’t find a special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X in the Apple store alongside the new iPhone 8 tomorrow, unfortunately — but if you want to support a good cause, you can get your hands on one of Apple’s new RED leather folio cases.
More than 400 Apple Stores around the world will sport red logos next week, while every Apple Pay transaction will result in a donation to the Global Fund. Apple will also promote apps and games that support (RED).
We couldn’t wait to get our hands on a new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and rip it out of its slick package. Check out our red iPhone unboxing video below to see what’s inside and get our first impressions of Apple’s latest device.
Sure, it looks spectacular, and a portion of your purchase goes to a good cause. It’s also packing Apple’s latest iPhone hardware — but that hardware is six months old now, and when September rolls around, it’s going to be old news.
Join us in this week’s Friday Night Fight as we discuss whether the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone — and iPhone 7 in general — is still worth your hard-earned cash.
